Two people were seriously injured after a tractor-trailer crashed into four automobiles due to brake problems in the north-central Vietnamese province of Quang Tri on Saturday.

The crash occurred along a section of National Highway No. 9 in Dakrong District, Quang Tri Province at around 4:00 pm.

The tractor-trailer was traveling from Lao Bao International Border Gate to Dong Ha City when it encountered a brake failure on a slope.

The vehicle then collided with a 12-seater automobile and three other cars, before flipping on its side.

Two people were severely injured and rushed to the hospital for emergency treatment, while several others sustained minor injuries.
